he's at 60.6. his margin over john mccain was 9.9 million. this us date was 2.9. he had a 7.2% margin over john mccain and a 2.1% margin over mitt romney. he becomes the first president getting a smaller share of the vote than he got in his first term. jim me seasonna gave a series of interviews where they said we are not going to be able to get where we need to get vick fly by talking about what you have done and painting a pretty picture of what you achieved. we have to go after romney's wealth, business experience and character with early advertising to drive up his negatives. this is a grand bet it's a dangerous strategy. because fit doesn't work out we won't have enough time or money to try something else. the president said go do it. they proceeded to slam romney in the summer. and what we have is a disappearing electric rats. we'll have 10 million people vote in 2012 than 2010. this is the first election in four previous elections where the share of the voting age population will decline, not increase. megyn: there has been soil searching in the republican party to diagnose the

votes are clustered in those big metropolitan areas. john mccain in 2008, excuse me, barack obama in 2008 won the 28 congressional districts with 80% of the vote or more and john mccain ten by that margin. that gives democrats a lot of votes in the big states, but it also means that there's not that many democrats in the chase and districts. this time obama carried the same number of states with that percentage and romney may have gotten that percentage in one or two districts in utah. maybe it's time for political scientists and abundance to rule out another rule about locks, who has a lot on which part of the government before that rule becomes obsolete. thank you. >> thank you. now tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for the republicans is in any case with going through the stages of grief, first its bid to be engaged in denial and that is what you saw with the "the washington times" piece that was read today. it's understandable. it's the human response, but it would be very smart for the republicans to get further along in those stages and not stay i

employed. this is on the senate floor yesterday. john mccain called for the select committee to investigate the attacks. [video clip] >> why is it that anybody including our ambassadors to the united nations would believe spontaneous demonstrations are composed of people with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, and heavy weapons? nobody believes that. why did president obama insists that he labeled the defense an act of terrorism on september 12 when we know now -- i repeat, we know now in an interview on the same day he refused to characterize the attacks in this way and spent two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his address to the united nations on september 25? we need a select committee. americans deserve to know. the families of those slain americans need to know. why in the world the administration or our friends and the other side of the aisle or anybody would test -- resist the appointment of a select committee. host: we will hear president obama's response to criticism. our question first is, how confident are you in a white house

compromise early on? >> reporter: senator john mccain has also called for a select water gaet-style attack. senator carl levin says such a committee is not necessary. also troubling why the fbi did not alert congress about the petraeus's extramarital affair. they say they have protocols when it notifies the legislative and executive branches. jenna: good information for us doug, thank you. we have more on this now. rick: more on benghazi and the testimony we're expecting to hear from general petraeus. we're joined by charlie hirt, a columnist at "the washington times." this will behind closed doors as doug was reporting. i wonder how much of this information is going to get out? certainly the public wants to hear if general petraeus is going to change his story at all? >> certainly i can understand why they chose to make it behind closed doors because it would be the most watched testimony of any hearing i think probably in the last couple years on capitol hill. but it is curious. i don't know what their the real explanation they're going to have to give for why they would put it behind cl

and john mccain. they attacked her for saying the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, had been a spontaneous outburst of muslim anger when officials already knew it was a terrorist attack. and they insisted they'd oppose having her replace hillary clinton, who's stepping down as secretary of state. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration-- and she's the point person-- is so disconnected from reality, i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better, and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> reporter: in response, the president was vehement in his defense of ambassador rice. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that

to the poll. mitt romney got fewer than john mccain and still came within two points. the technology included the so-called system some of you have maybe read about in the last couple of days which was the republican get-out-the-vote technology to ensure people are getting to the polls. i'm told on election day it had so many hits around the country as it should have from people saying this person voted and this person didn't. but if that was under attack it closed down. so for those of you hear from again that technology field to enter some politics, we republicans want to talk to you. [laughter] we need some help. the democratic system was quite effective at micro targeting and i've heard lots of anecdotes and one this morning that you will love that somebody gets a call that's a democrat from law school and was we see that you voted and disinformation is publicly available. was it you that voted 2:00 on election day but your sister hasn't. can you call her. that's the level at that point. that led to a turnout effort that in the end makes the difference. the increase in turnout among the b

was underperforming john mccain among hispanics, he actually won more of the african-american vote than john mccain did. now, he won 6% instead of 4%, but he actually got up to like 8% or 9% among 18 to 29-year-old african-americans which is the group that's hardest hit by unemployment. again, these are tiny numbers. >> mitt romney underperformed a light post with hispanics. don't get started on that. >> a jack kent republican would be very welcome right now to create some sense of competition. we have 10% or 11% of the country right now in free fall and neither party taking it seriously. that's bad. >> it's not as if the republicans didn't work for the african-american and latino vote, they actively rejected it. that was the sense i got. they used it as a way to run up the score with white voters and really created a corrosive toxic discourse that i think hurt everybody. >> what's your unsolicited advice today, ana? >> well, my unsolicited advice is for -- >> hold it up. >> how do you say that in spanish? an extra exclamation point. >> say yeb or bushito. he will respond to either in miami. in ful

a story recently about him, and we had john mccain talking about how much he respected him even though they don't always see eye to eye. but i will say this, i think that, um, the foreign relations panels in both chambers, um, you know, since i guess the '60s really have just not had as much of an impact on what the president does as they, as they used to. um, now, if kerry becomes the secretary of state, you know, then i guess you end up taking what he was hoping to do and having it at the administration level. but, again, that just sort of reiterates what i'm saying which is that you can't do much until you're in the administration about those kinds of things. i don't know, jason, do you agree? >> i think you made a very good point, and if i could just go back to corker also, corker is kind of this fascinating character to me that, i mean, he is in some ways almost nonpartisan in the way that he deals with a lot of people. i think this may be, you know, his background as mayor of chattanooga. but instead of going to the republican national convention in tampa over the summer, he went

that actually mitt got 2 million less votes than john mccain. which no one would have thought. the election wasn't all that close. >> turnout was obviously different than '08. your point is well taken. we're looking at a picture of grover. we had over the weekend bill kristol, another influential voice on the gop said say on fox i don't understand why republicans just don't take the president's offer? are they really going to defend millionaires, half of whom voted democrat and half of whom live in hollywood? those are kristol's views. i wonder if you think the norquists of the world are getting marginalized here? >> i certainly hope so. he wasn't elected to anything. you can talk to wealthy people. no one wants to pay more taxes. but, believe me, we don't get out of bed in the morning and try to figure out what our tax rate is and decide whether we're going to go to work or not. we go to work because that's what we do. i also think democrats have to compromise on entitlements. i don't see why they can't raise the retirement age for people who are maybe younger than 40, medicare. everything has

, john mccain accused president obama of having plans to reduce the navy to 250 ships. obama has no such plan. he is totally oblivious to these forces. but there will be lucky to end this process at 250 ships. the cbo estimate of what's possible to happen is somewheres between 270 ships from the north end, and 170 ships on the south bend. that assumes -- the south end. that assumes the current cbo cost estimates for the cost of these ships is about right, and we know from past experience that cbo always has higher estimates for the navy but in reality even cbo is a little. so the lower band of cbo ship count numbers is extremely possible, given what's going to be happening to the navy shipbuilding as the navy shipbuilding budget experiences tresses things like the f-35, if they are crazy not to buy it, which will be much more expensive to acquire and operate than existing aircraft. and there's going to be a duel with the navy budget between the f-35 and shipbuilding. they're both going to end up losing. as this shrinkage occurs in the navy fleet, it will of course also be aging.

-- let me start with you because when john started out talking about the latino vote, these numbers are pretty shocking and overwhelming. bush in 2004, 44% of the vote. mccain. 31% and now, mitt romney at 27%. what happened to the enroads made by george w. bush? >> there's no coat tails. with hispanics and gop, they don't really exist. latinos vote for a candidate, not a party. for many, the republican brand is very tarnished. it's seen as she doesn't care for the latino community or those interests, which are all these very false stereotypes. over the last 40 years, republicans earned 30% of the hispanic vote. that's about the average. and we understood if we do not get up into the 37, 38, 39%, the republican party will fail to win national elections from probably 2012 on. >> that's a pretty incredible thing. >> you saw john king put up that map. i mean, there's a state that stands out there. that state was texas. are we now looking at a point where texas could be something you could make a play for as a democrat? >> i think texas is no doubt going to be a purple state. just a plac
